Anyone have (or seen) a decent 60mm fan with either four, six, or eight blades? I'm looking to run it in a dielectric liquid - which is rather thicker then air - so I want to cut some blades off. All the fans seem to have seven blades, which makes keeping a balanced roatating assembly impossible once you start lopping blades off.

Really this is more just to be an *** and argue...

Even number of blades dosn't matter, just file them down in size instead oflopping them off. Also try looking through some R/C Airplane rescources and you can just cut your own.

Technically the most EFFICIENT prop is one bladed with a counterwieght.
